Join Adalah-NY's critically acclaimed
Anti-Apartheid Holiday Caroling Choir
in front of Lev Leviev's Madison Avenue diamond store
Oh the diamonds inside are sparklin’
But they can't hide what's behind ‘em
They're funding apartheid, so
Just say no, Just say no, Just say no
Why we boycott Lev Leviev’s Companies
The companies of Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev have built thousands of homes for Israeli settlers on Palestinian land in the West Bank in violation of international law. But Leviev’s companies are feeling pressure, thanks to a seven-year international boycott campaign, including this, our eighth consecutive year of holiday caroling at Leviev’s Manhattan store. Israeli media report that Leviev’s company Africa Israel again made statements about ending their settlement construction, while even angry Israeli settlers don’t know if Leviev quietly sold his stake in his other settlement company, Leader Management and Development. In Angola, security companies for Leviev’s diamond mining company have yet again been accused of torturing and brutalizing poor Angolan communities.
Why we support the BDS Movement
Adalah-NY is part of the Palestinian-led movement for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel that is modeled on the global campaign that helped to bring an end to apartheid in South Africa.
